Suicides have occurred to both the young and old alike in Ohio. The Belmont County Suicide Prevention Coalition (BCSPC) has been established as a multi-disciplinary and a multi-agency based group wishing to implement and promote suicide prevention as a public health issue in Belmont County. The Coalition strives to use evidence-based practices to provide awareness and intervention to Belmont county's residents of all ages. One of the chief goals of the coalition is to eliminate the stigma associated with suicide.
The meetings are open to anyone interested. The next meeting will be held at 321 3rd Street, Belmont, Ohio 43718 on April 21 at 1:30 p.m. in the Belmont Gym. BCSPCE encourages the public to participate to help bring awareness to the stigma associated with suicide.
